I started embroidering patches as gifts for friends but it quickly became more of an obsession. My hoop, needle, and binder full of colored floss come with me wherever I go. Embroidery is a therapeutic process. Similar to animation, it takes a lot of patience to complete one piece but it is well worth it when you do.
I now run Lottie Go-Go, an online shop where I sell my hand embroidered patches along with illustrated cards and hand stitched zippie pencil cases.
